Chocolate and Nut Bliss Balls

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I now make bliss balls each week, to have on hand as a healthy snack for the whole family and something to put in the kids lunchboxes. Depending on my mood I add the coconut into the ball or I roll the ball in the coconut.  For this recipe I chose to have it in the ball.

These do have nuts in them, so depending on your child’s school policies you may not be able to add them to their lunchbox. Our school allows all food.

Did you say that the preparation is only ten minutes? Pretty impressive! My niece and nephews love to eat sweet bite-size snacks and I think this is perfect for their Valentines.
